Karst House, Štanjel

At the crossroads stands a modest, multi-storeyed Karst house that reflects the character of folk architecture.

One of the oldest preserved buildings in the settlement Štanjel, it shows how inventive these modest inhabitants were, using stone for construction where possible. Rainwater is channelled from its slate roof through stone gutters into a monumental fountain. An ethnological collection is on view in the interior of the house.
Reflects the architectural characteristics of the first Karst houses built during the Romanesque and Gothic periods. The non-residential part of the house is situated on the ground floor. The bedrooms and kitchen are on the first floor.
